If you are curious about working with me one on one, I work with individuals, athletes, and couples from all over the world. Head over to www.nicobarraza.com to inquire more.
This week's guest is Anjelica Marsh. She is a school counselor who was a collegiate softball player that had a ankle injury that led her to a surgeon that would change her life forever.
Unfortunately there are just as many mistakes in medicine as there are healings. Anjelica shares her personal story of how a botched surgery changed her life and left her in chronic pain. I share my own story too and together we chat about the difficulties of living in chronic pain and navigating the medical mal practice legal system, as well as being your own best advocate in a healthcare scenario.
Here is a link to the article that I stumbled upon that made me want to interview Anjelica on the show http://anjelicasmoments.org/2020/04/13/to-the-doctor-who-ruined-my-life/
Here are a few more writings of hers
For many people who suffer from chronic pain it can feel like you are trapped in a jail cell in your own body. Especially when the pain was caused by the same system that should be alleviating physical pain. I hope this episode gives you some sense of community and leaves you feeling connected, seen, and not alone.
I hope you find the answers you need to feel better and to feel at peace.
